News 
 Detroit Tigers first baseman C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in a 13-9 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Notes 
 With power being downplayed this year in a sprint of a season, Cron becomes more and more attractive as a late-round play if you wait at first base.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If nothing else, Votto will play regularly and is still an asset in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Cron had 30 homers in 2018 and followed it up with 25 last year despite just 125 games played. Should he see a full season of health, 35 or even 40 is a possibility but the cost is a medicore at best batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It has now been two seasons since Votto has displayed any power, and his batting average has dropped quite a bit each of the last two years. He might not be helpful in fantasy whatsoever, but there is, of course, a chance that he bounces back to become a top 12 first basemen once again.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Tremendous advanced statistics in 2019 shine a bright light on his 2020 outlook. Should play everyday in the heart of the Tigers lineup. Solid late round option.
